George Takei on his time in Internment Camp


That time I stood around a rich man’s pool in Bel Air with George Takei and the rich man’s husband told us the mansion had once been owned by the Hormel family. You know, the chili company, canned meats, that sort of thing. This was the house Hormel built. And George Takei said, oh yes, we used to eat Hormel Spam in the internment camp.

"We can demand apologies and force PR teams to write statements, but if we fail to understand why others think and believe the way they do, we will never be able to help them evolve. Social justice workers are taught to ‘meet people where they are.’ All too often it seems our real goal is to drag others who think differently to where we want them to be, kicking and screaming, without investing real time in the lives and experiences of others. As a friend once told me, that pathway results in social justice work being ‘incredibly social’ and ‘insufficiently just.’"
